Today is World Plumbing Day. It seems like we a have a ‘day’ for everything these days (sorry, pardon the pun!) which is another excuse to throw on a function and celebrate the world of… whatever and today it’s plumbing.
I’m not trying to be sarcastic but I can’t keep up with all these different days since we just had International Women’s Day on Friday. Can you believe we also have a World Toilet day on the 19th of November?
What is World Plumbing Day? Here is the exact wording from the World Plumbing Day website.
I have always written about how important it is to use a licensed plumber when installing plumbing. If there was no running water or sewerage, there would be no such vocation as being a plumber. And plumbing is a necessary need that ensures everybody’s waste is taken away safely and fresh water is supplied easily with no contamination. This is why plumbing is a licensed trade.
So to all plumbers in Australia and around the world, Happy Plumbing Day! You may not have received breakfast in bed or a card to say thank you for being a plumber, but you can be assured that what you do keeps our society safe from diseases and ill health.
